Carol's Profile

About

I am a former snow bird who once traveled between Pennsylvania and South Carolina, but since retiring a few years ago, I am now a permanent resident of South Carolina. I love crafting and make things all the time for my four granddaughters. Even my two grandsons have made special requests for my jewelry and knitwear from time to time when they become aware of what I have made for their sisters. Besides making things, I do a lot of volunteer work. I presently volunteer for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and an organization called Safe Harbour that aims to keep seniors living in their own homes. I used to work for an organization called Heroes on Horseback which taught riding to children with disabilities. I had to stop that when I got "too long in the tooth" as they say in the horse world. It's not easy trotting beside a horse, while also making sure the child riding it is safe and secure…

I am, for the most part, a self-taught crafter. I taught myself to knit many years ago, and it wasn't until I retired that I began to become captivated with the art of making jewelry.

I confess, however, that I have taken the time to get some professional advice by enrolling in as many jewelry classes as I can find and afford in the area where I live. I am lucky to be not far from SCAD, the University for Creative Careers in Savannah and I have taken some of their community outreach courses. There are also three bead shops in my area where I continually take classes.

This retirement thing is great because I now get a chance to develop the creative spark that languished in me for all those working years when I was chained to a desk. I still created then, but only enough to give my family and friends occasional gifts.

Now I'm ready to create for you. It will be fun to see how that goes.

Thanks for visiting my shop! Less «
